Chicago Blackhawks vs. Dallas Stars, 8:30PM ET (View Matchup)
Chicago is just 6-18-1 in their last 25 games at Dallas and the Stars have won 5 of their last 6 games against Central Division opponents. My pick is with Dallas at home as they have clearly played more consistent this season compared to Chicago, yet have an even betting line. I will jump at the chance to have a division leader with even odds at home against a team currently not in the playoffs.
